Hi, I'm Sarah, and I run Music Room Direct from my home in a village in Cambridgeshire.
People often ask me why is my business themed around music? Am I a musician myself? Well, sadly no, but I love listening to every kind of music and I think that through music, we can channel our deepest emotions and relive memories as well as just enjoying the sheer joy of a beautiful melody.
I started my own business because I wanted to work more flexibly around my children, and to get away from the tyranny of a daily commute. Then I met someone who was making music themed furniture and the idea of selling handmade, original music gifts that were useful in the home really interested me. It seemed that music was a very universal theme that appealed to many people, yet the music themed gifts I saw in the music shops looked mass produced and cheaply made and I wanted to offer something different, something that I would want to buy myself. I also wanted everything I sold to have a purpose, a function, to be useful. So I went to craft fairs and found artists and craftspeople whose work I loved and asked them if they would make original musical designs for me that I could sell in my online shop.
The result is that everything that Music Room Direct offers is handmade by artists from all over the UK, who have created beautiful, fun and functional accessories for your home, based around the shapes of music and musical instruments. I hope you agree that our products are quirky and imaginative, and enjoy the fact that they are completely unique to Music Room Direct.
It is such a pleasure and a privilege working with so many creative small businesses, like the guitar makers who produce my cheeseboards, and it makes me proud of everything I send out. I want every customer to feel valued, which is why I always try to price fairly, offer free postage where possible, and let you know immediately if there is any problem or delay with your order. I hope you find gifts for friends and family here as well as treats for yourself, and have fun doing it, which is, after all what it is all about!
